So I have not used a film camera on a telescope since I was 15yo, and had no idea what I was doing (5 second exposures on the moon is what I was doing ).
Anyways, now that I am 22 and a tinge more experienced I want to give film another go.
Using real glass plates I feel would be very hard and they are much too large for consumer telescopes. So I have had this burning idea for the last few years.
Could you take the film photos (or CCD images for a back to the future project (not meant as a reference)), have them printed on glass/acrylic plates then stack a handful of of them so you effectively get a brick shape? I assume a normal photo would become too dim so it would need to be done with negatives?
If it would work I think it would be a really cool desk/shelf ornament especially if you put an EL/LED panel behind it.
Just thought of this, maybe you could even use B&W film/CCD and use filters. Then have each photo printed in its respective color of ink and once you stack the plates it would make a full color image if you got it printed at a lower contrast.
